SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, is set to air an impactful show on Sunday, Dec. 11, on why people lie. The show, which will broadcast at 5 p.m. Pacific time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles, aims to share research regarding how the brain adapts to dishonesty and breaking down the different types of liars and how to know when a person is lying. Also on the show, listeners can hear a personal perspective on compulsive lying from a former compulsive liar. The show is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Sovereign Health, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's show will open with Neil Garrett, Ph.D., a cognitive neuroscientist at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Additional panelists for Sunday's show include Charles Ford, M.D., a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, School of Medicine, and Robert Buchanan, a panelist who will educate the audience on why he engaged in lying.
"In the real world, we see a lot of acts of dishonesty that seem to slowly progress from small instances to much larger instances. You can think about evading taxes, infidelity and doping in sports. In all of these instances, people often recall that they started out lying to a small degree, but then it snowballed over time. There may be examples of why this occurs, and one of the reasons why we suspect this may be the case is a biological principal of how our brain works. This is the idea of emotional adaptation," explains Dr. Garrett.
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
